Product Review: MUFE HD Invisible Cover Foundation

.

Product: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Quality: 4 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5
Price: $40, Sephora
Shade Purchased: #127 (Dark Sand)
Would I buy again? Yes!

***My next post WILL show the MUFE foundation as that is what I am using!***

What it is:
An oil-free medium-to-full-coverage liquid foundation that covers skin imperfections flawlessly while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life.

What it does:
Creates a soft-focus effect, designed to meet the coverage concerns of those in the spotlight. It creates a complexion that looks flawless, even in bright or harsh lighting.

What else you need to know:
This Sephora-exclusive foundation comes in 25 different shades to suit all skintones

-Relipidium: Moisturizes the skin (+46% after 4h).
-Fucogel: Forms a microfilm that prevents dehydration and protects against external aggression.
-Sericite: Enables rays of light to spread more widely, intensifying the radiance of the complexion.

Ingredients:
Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Neopentyl Glycol Diethylhexanoate, Mica, talc, PEG-10 Dimenthicone, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Phenyl, Trimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Lauroyl Lysine, Dimenthicone Crosspolymer, Glyceryl Caprylate, Methylpropanediol, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sodium Myristoyl Glutamate, Cyclohexacyloxane, Methylisothiazolinone, Sorbitan Sesquileate, Silver Oxide, Propylene, Carbonate, Parfum (fragrance), Methylparaben, Fagus Sylvatica Extract (Fagus Sylvatica Bud Extract), Hydrolyzed Yeast Protein, [+/- CI 77891 )titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides).

Prelude: I had to give this foundation a spin since I am always on the lookout for a flawless foundation. (I also love MUFE's HD Powder!) It had so many great reviews and I love MUFE by default, so I definitely had to test this out even though I hate liquid foundations because they tend to break me out, but I don't need too much coverage to begin with so mineral foundations are still my weapon of choice. :)

PROS:
- Goes on nicely, easy to blend. Does give a nice flawless finish, almost like an airbrushed look, no shine. Definitely great for photoshoots!
- They give you a lot of product, and a little goes a long way so you don't need a lot to cover your entire face. Just a couple dots and blend with either a sponge or a foundation brush and that's it!
- The bottle is cute and it's easy to travel with
- No weird funky obvious smell
- Lasts a long time (at least for me but I have dry skin)
- Can be used by itself or under mineral foundation for a more airbrushed look or to set. Or you can use MUFE HD Powder (the white one) over this to set.
- Finally a liquid foundation that matches me perfectly!

CONS:
- May be a bit pricey for some of you, but it lasts a long time, I've been using mine for about 3 months now and it still looks like I haven't touched it!
- I started to break out a bit but I cannot pinpoint whether this foundation was the cause of it or it was in addition to something else (such as a new skin regimen or primer, etc), I have used it by itself and as well as along with my mineral foundation OVER it recently, and have not broken out, so it may just have been something else

Overall? This is a pretty remarkable foundation. It's easy to see why many industry professionals use MUFE, especially TV news anchors and the like. It doesn't give a "whitish cast" on camera and really blends well with your skin for a natural and flawless finish. It's like you are not even wearing any makeup! I also like how there are a TON of shades to choose from and you most likely will find one that matches you. The price is a bit steep considering I pay less than half of that for my mineral foundation, BUT it lasts you a really long time and the results make it worth it!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
You have def sold me on this product! I've been debating on this or just the old sku MAC Studio Fix Liquid, but I might just cave and get this. It is def a bit steep =X I've never tried liquid before, so I still can't decide which brand to try first.

hHhmmmmmm...MUFE looks pretty promising =] hehe

Thanks for the review, I am always looking for a good foundation since I need full coverage since sadly I still get acne (I'm 22) and till this day I haven't found the perfect foundation. but I think I'll give it a try and hope for the best.

Askmewhats said...

We have the same dry skin, so when you say this works, it sparks my interest, I have tested on MUFE foundation, but not the HD one..so I have to give the tester a try :) Thanks for the review nessa :)

MakeupByRenRen said...

i love my MUFE HD foundation too...but i got the wrong shade! i always have to mix it with another foundation to make it darker, lol cuz i'm getting my money's worth!

Ethereal Prey said...

can't wait to see what it looks like on you now! is it better than the maybelline mineral liquid foundataion you reviewed a while back? damn i want to get me a bottle now! but damn isn't the white setting powder even more pricy than the foundation?

Gee said...

OMG, I want to try this so badly! So far I'm loving my MUFE stuff so I really want to get this!

Tammy said...

I really want to try this, but I just found my HG in mineral foundation so I think I'm going to hold off till I get bored of it. lol Thank you for the review!

tokyostargirl said...

I've heard great things about this. Definitely need to try it! Thanks for the review.

Jenna said...

There's methylparaben in it. Maybe your skin is sensitive to parabens?

Shelly Rodriguez said...

I've been using Smashbox's oil-free foundation (comes in a similar bottle as this foundation); I love the color match, its absolutely fantastic for me, but WOW do I go through it quickly! It seems pretty thin, but maybe I am too used to my old MAC liquid.

I think I will try a bottle of this when my Smashbox runs out. :) Thanks for the recommendation!

Vanessa said...

Hi Jenna- I don't know...because I have other products that have parabens in it, even some that have more than this one and they are fine on my skin...so I am not sure.

i always love your thorough and informative makeup reviews -- def. helps me and alot of other ladies in taking the plunge for "the goods" -- u go with your rockstar status blog.. and i'm loving the new look for your profile photo, very vintage vampy!

fuzkittie said...

Aahh I wanna try it so badly now!! But I just got a new foundation in addition to my drawer of foundations! :[

EpicLove said...

I just got a sample of this stuff when I went to sephora. I'm SO excited to try it!

Scandalous Beauty said...

This is my FAVORITE foundation EVER. I own 8 different MAC foundations, but this highly surpasses them all, IMO!! I just can't get enough of it!

Shades Of U said...

Been waiting for you forever to post a review of this. I have one (can you believe it? ME?), but I ony use it for special occasions, and possibly for makeup jobs or photoshoots. I LOVED it, BUT like you, it broke out my supersensitive skin. I will try it out again and hopefully this time it would agree with my skin.

Elizabeth said...

I bought this while i was in Paris. I bought the Purple and i totally love it! Its the best oil free primer ive used and my foundation still looked fresh at the end of the night!

Elizabeth said...

OPPS! i thought it was the primer you reviewed didnt realise it was the foundation hehe

I've was hoping you'd review this. =)I've seen other reviews, but your skin type description is most similar to mine. I think I'll give it a try.

Janelle said...

Gah I'd love to try this! HD makeup fascinates me. Maybe after my next paycheck I'll splurge on this. Hehehe.

Thanks for the review!

Jamilla Camel said...

I am a MAC NC25 and wear MUFE HD 120. I've got dry skin and this works really well for me--I use this with the MUFE HD Powder.
